Dear Lion,

A great partner will always bring out the best in you. And for more than 50 years, Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) has been empowering Lions to serve at our best. Now, in our final year of Campaign 100, we have an incredible opportunity to give back and help ensure that Lions at home, and around the world, have the support they need for years to come.

I have personally seen the impact that LCIF makes through my club and in my community. Your donation to Campaign 100 is more than a contribution to your foundation—it is a gift from your heart to your community. It is a promise to continue to fight hunger, prevent diabetes, protect the environment and help the people around you live healthy and hope-filled lives. Because that is why we serve. And together with LCIF and Campaign 100, we can deliver that promise and a better future for all.

Yours in Service,
Douglas X. Alexander
International President

 

 

 

LOCAL AND GLOBAL

Kindness Matters

 

We’re 1.4 million men and women serving our communities and the world through uncommon kindness. Discover kindness in your community today.

 

The coronavirus (COVID-19) is changing the way we travel, congregate and serve in communities around the world. We care about every member, and the people we serve, which is why we all need to put health and safety first in this challenging time for the world.

We have received requests for suggestions on how to minimize the risk to Lions, clubs and communities when serving.

Here are some recommendations on how you can keep yourself and your community healthy:

  • Consult local authorities and guidelines governing group events and large gatherings when considering Lions events.
  • Put health and safety first as you consider new meetings, projects and any other club activities.
  • Wash your hands frequently, avoid nonessential travel and crowds, especially if you live in an area where there’s an outbreak.
  • Check the recommendations from health experts such as the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or your local government for any new updates since this remains an evolving situation.
  • For questions regarding your district (single, sub- and multiple) conventions, please contact your district leadership for guidance.
  • Remember, individuals over 60 and those with serious chronic medical conditions are at a higher risk of getting very sick from this illness.

A comprehensive list of ways to protect yourself and your club can be found on the WHO website or the CDC website.

Lions have served for more than one hundred years. We have been there for our communities during countless challenges to the world. Let’s consider ways we can safely help, such as providing meals to low-income students whose schools are closing due to the virus. Let’s check in on family, friends and neighbors. Let’s continue to put our kindness in action while keeping health and safety in mind.

Now more than ever, it is important that we stand together as local communities, as a global community, and as Lions. Thank you for serving your community and the world.

 

 

Lions Clubs International (LCI) is an international non-political service organization established originally in 1917 in Chicago, Illinois. It is now headquartered in Oak Brook, Illinois. As of January 2020, it had over 46,000 local clubs and more than 1.4 million members (Lions & LEO) in more than 200 countries around the world.

Lions Clubs International, a service membership organization of over 1.4 million members worldwide, was founded in Evansville, Indiana on 24 October 1916 by Dr. William Perry Woods and subsequently evolved as an international service organization under the guidance and supervision of its Secretary, Melvin Jones.

In 1917, Melvin Jones, was a 38-year-old Chicago business leader who told members of his local business club they should reach beyond business issues and address the betterment of their communities and the world. Jones' group, the Business Circle of Chicago, agreed. After contacting similar groups around the United States, an organizational meeting was held on June 7, 1917, in Chicago, Illinois, US. The Business Circle subsequently joined one of the invited groups, the "International Association of Lions Clubs" and at a national convention held in Dallas, Texas, later that year, those who were assembled: (1) adopted a Constitution, By-Laws, Code of Ethics and an Emblem; (2) established as a main tenet "unselfish service to others", (3) unanimously elected Dr. William Perry Woods as its first President effectively securing his leadership for the first two years of the existence of the International Association of Lions, and (4) selected Melvin Jones to serve as the Organization's Secretary-Treasurer.[3]

The Lions motto is "We Serve". Local Lions Club programs include sight conservation, hearing and speech conservation, diabetes awareness, youth outreach, international relations, environmental issues, and many other programs.[4] The discussion of politics and religion is forbidden. The LIONS acronym also stands for Liberty, Intelligence, Our Nations' Safety.[

 

Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization with more than 1.4 million members in approximately 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world.
